The Rockometer: Here and Nowhere Else by Cloud Nothings

    Cloud Nothings Here and Nowhere Else Carpark/Mom + Pop Is the Cloud Nothings' Here and Nowhere Else catch? Lead vocalist/guitarist Dylan Baldi writes hooks like that's what he was born to do.

A Jam Packed Tuesday with Cloud Nothings, The Horrors, EMA, Jessica Lea Mayfield and Kevin Drew

The leaner, meaner Cloud Nothings continue to get both leaner and meaner on "Psychic Trauma," the second preview track from their forthcoming release, Here and Nowhere Else (4.1 on Carpark/Mom+Pop).

The Horrors may not be a name band in the states, like they are in the UK, but that isn't about to stop them from sticking to their strengths...READ MORE

Play Me: “I’m Not Part of Me” by Cloud Nothings

In a sense, "I'm Not Part of Me," feels out of order. With 2012's Attack on Memory, Cleveland's Cloud Nothings made a huge leap forward from their humble beginnings as a bedroom pop project of singer/guitarist Dylan Baldi. Here, they were a fully-formed rock band, with a heavy guitar-based sound, one which payed homage to classic '90s indie rock bands on labels like Chicago's Touch and Go Records and Seattle's Sub Pop. They had s...READ MORE

I Rock Cleveland’s 2012 Artist of the Year: Cloud Nothings

Change is good, they say. They, being the executive class, just before they introduce a new company policy designed to screw the worker and pad the profits. Change is exciting, they'll say that, too, as with a straight face they try to convince themselves and you that these new health benefits, worse than last year's and worse than five year's prior by a factor of ten, are actually better for you and your family. I happen to ...READ MORE

2012 Pitchfork Music Festival: Cloud Nothings

Looking more like an extra from the Cameron Crowe movie Singles than the young man who charmed critics with bedroom pop songs, Dylan Baldi confidently took the stage early Saturday afternoon with the rest of his Cleveland band, Cloud Nothings, and proceeded to tear through selections from their new, and very much heavier album, Attack on Memory. If you happened to catch the band outside the Rock Hall Wednesday night, then you alr...READ MORE
